Amtrak Delays

MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have identified two of three people killed late Sunday night when the SUV they were in was struck by an Amtrak train in Massachusetts.

Mansfield Police Lt. Sam Thompson said in a statement Wednesday 26-year-old Zachary Keene of Raynham and 28-year-old David Curry of Foxborough have been identified by the state medical examiner’s office. He said the third victim was a woman, but further forensic testing is needed to positively identify her.

Police said the three were in a 2000 Land Rover on the eastbound right of way between the Gilbert Street and Elm Street overpasses in Mansfield when it was struck from behind by an Amtrak Northeast Regional train just before midnight.

The crash caused part of the train to derail and delayed train service on Monday. No one on the train was hurt.
